  1. He looks great, really not into this wave much so I hope he gets the deluxe Rerelease treatment, seems reasonably likely since he combines two A-list characters
  2. I feel like I should want to get this figure but he just seems bland to me. Has he worn a purple costume instead of black at times? That seems to be how I remember him although I could be off base
  3. Yeah, i heard it hit at a Target in Burbank, CA. Unfortunately my understanding is the DCPI is the same as wave 1 Gamerverse which makes looking up inventory on popfindr trickier. I'm not too worried as Wave 1 Gamerverse wasn't hard to find.
  4. Yeah I am more than OK with that. Nothing against mcu characters but comic villains are much more to my liking.
  5. Well, i'm way behind everyone else but finally picked up the Family Matters 3-pack and am totally loving it. I think Quicksilver looks much better in hand than in the product photos, although i get the complaints about his head size and wisps of hair not sticking out. While Scarlet Witch has never been a character i'm all that fond of, a beautiful figure and obviously a pretty key member the Avengers roster for many eras. And while i had gotten use to the Apoc wave Magneto in black, definitely digging this figure in the classic colors (while still understanding some of the complaints people had). Of course now the set will probably go on sale but whatever, since i'm not able to get Hellfire Club until (maybe) March, this (and Kingpin who is arriving next week) is my consolation prize and its a great one! woohoo
  6. Nah, i was thinking of all the trouble folks had getting Worthy Cap, 80th anniv cap, the comic Thanos exclusive, and the Corvus Glaive 2-pack. But obviously people's experiences can vary quite a bit based on the stores around you locally. Since Mako is in WM's home state of Arkansas it doesn't really surprise me much that targets aren't as good at stocking exclusives as WM there. And i did mention Red Hulk and GI Joe as being real problems for Target (don't collect NECA Turtles so i can't speak to them) but for me Deadly Origins Widow, Starforce Carol, Stan Lee, Starboost Iron Man all seemed pretty easy to get. Likewise for the Star Wars Black series target excluisves that i can think of.
  7. thanks for the clarification, since that's the case decided to order the set.
  8. Annnnnd they just announced two more Target Exclusive GI Joes (out of 4 reveals total, one of which is a repaint). Makes me glad i am an ML collector and decided to hold off on getting into Joes. I do think (hope?) that Target won't underorder Gambit and Rogue the way they did the Joes... sure, Red Hulk was a fiasco too but otherwise i feel like Target exclusives haven't been that hard to track down, relative to say WM exclusives.
  9. Yeah i will finally have to break down and get an Iceman figure as well. Although maybe they will announce another version is coming before the Firestar figure comes out. I forgot about Moira, i wonder how in-demand she will be.
  10. Yeah i will be the sucker that gets this version then buys the more classic version when it comes out. Been waiting long enough for a Sam figure, don't feel like waiting another year or two for a fully classic version lol.
  11. OK, first of all enjoyed the presentation even though there were a few bits i could've lived without. Great job, hasbro! Got about 5-6 figures to put on my "must-have" list for 2021: Kang Falcon Jocasta Arcade (and man, does a "bring on the bad guys" wave sound fun!!) Firestar Rogue - maybe, although i might just go for the 2-pack version instead. oh well plenty of time to think it over Will probably wait for the inevitable deluxe re-release of Joe Fixit that is repainted in grey, rather than completing the BAF. that's about all for me but certainly a lot of nice figures for all types of marvel fans (well, i guess there wasn't much for mcu fans, but not really hasbro's fault that all the movies got pushed back). Kind of mean to tease us about mcu Quicksilver though!!
  12. I think overall Hasbro handled the exclusive sales quite well. While it would've been nice to save at least a little bit of the stock on hand for non-premium customers, ultimately its a lot better to let everyone who wants one have the ability to preorder rather than running out in 5-10 minutes and then nobody else can get it except on the aftermarket. Personally, i'm still mulling over whether to preorder a set or not as i just don't like putting down money for something that i might not get until 6 months later, but that's mainly because there are a lot of other figures coming out NOW that i could use that money towards instead. Hopefully today's reveals will give me a sense of whether there are a lot of figures coming next year that i would want to budget for, or if they are figures i will skip like the Venompool wave and Strong Guy wave. In the meantime took the money i had specifically set aside for Hellfire and bought the Family Matters 3-pack i've been eyeballing forever as well as retro Kingpin, so i'll still have some great 'new to me' figures to play around. At this point my main focus is on characters from comics 1960s-1980s, with random additions from 90s/modern with maybe a few novelty figures like Piratepool in the mix. But i always enjoy seeing reveals and even when its a figure i don't want its fun to see how psyched up various fans get about finally getting one of their favorites made.
  13. its available for preorder with estimated shipping date 3/29. basically they didn't reserve any for us non-premium pleebs to get today. Which i'm ok with (especially since there is still the opportunity to preorder) but would've been nice to know up front as we all know the premium members would buy up whatever sets were made available to them - which in this case was the entire stock hasbro had.
  14. Yeah, looks like they sold out of the sets they had in stock to premium pulse members yesterday. Those of us non-premium members can at least still order one, (which is certainly better than missing out entirely) but it could be awhile. I decided to think it over for a day, especially since their system was understandably backed up and slow this afternoon.
